    Elon Musk says he wired up a monkey’s brain to play video games with its mind

    There is never a dull moment with Elon Musk. At a recent Clubhouse interaction, the world’s richest man revealed that his Neuralink start-up has monkeys with brain implants that allow them to play video games with one another.

    “We’ve already got a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull, and the tiny wires, who can play video games using his mind,” Musk said in an interview on the “Good Time Show” on the app Clubhouse on Sunday night. The company has implanted a wireless implant in a monkey’s skull with tiny wires, but this doesn’t seem to be causing any kinds of ethical concerns.

    “One of the things we’re trying to figure out is whether we can have the monkeys playing mind pong with each other?,” he said. “That would be pretty cool.” Animal welfare within the realm of science is, naturally, a concern for many groups, but Musk claimed that the monkey is happy and that an inspector from the US Department of Agriculture said their lab was “the nicest monkey facility” they had seen.

    We’re likely to hear a more formal and public press release about this achievement soon.
